The Joy of Autumn

Autumn is the season of harvest.

I made a smidgen of jam from the fruit of a Russian Olive, 
which bore for the first time in our tiny garden.
The sweet and sour taste of the jam matched cold tofu 
with pickled Yuzu (Japanese citrus) in honey.


My absolute favorite is the clear blue sky with crisp air!

It cleanses my heart and fills me with power, hope, and joy!


I hope you enjoy these videos (sorry, they're just short music, though)
and a picture of the autumn festival, which was held in the middle of October.

Above are the stands along the streets, for food, masks and games .

  1. Ooooh Sachi, this festival looks so lively and festive, and associated with craftsmanship. It looks delighteful. I want to go to Japan!!! You do have an abundance of rituals and traditions that seem so closely woven into seasons and mindful attitudes.By the way, I do love autumn too (even if it is not my favourite season...nothing beats spring for me))! :)
